Do you have to provide the sound effect for someone car blown up by the mafia? This library has the sound to sell that a car was blown up when the engine was started by the talent. To allow you to sell a believable experience TONSTURM did blow up a Nissan Micra, an Opel Monterey (SUV) and an Opel Vectra station wagon.

TONSTURM went the extra mile and to assure the sound of destruction was as realistic as possible. When buying the cars they have been looking for cars which did have complete interior fittings to destroy it with their lethal explosives. Not that it would have matter, but it helps with the result.

Beside the full sound of destroying cars, you also get sounds destroying parts of the vehicles as the character of the explosion sound effects differs.

A crucial part of creating any TONSTURM libraries is an in-depth research phase. Having that in mind and understanding that TONSTURM did over the years blow many things up they have been prepared. They have been truly ready to blow those vehicles up.
